The windshield of my '18 GT was hit by a rock and needed to be replaced. I called my local dealer and was told they use a local auto glass shop for glass replacement. I called the glass company and arranged to get my windshield replaced, which they did using an aftermarket unit. I took the vehicle to my dealer to get the cameras for the FCM and LDW recalibrated. The dealer can't get the recalibration to work. They called Mitsubishi technical support and we told they (Mitsu techical) had seen this before and the only fix is to use genuine Mitsubishi glass.

I'm just a little skeptical about this and I am wondering if anyone else had their windshield replaced? If so, did you have similar issues?

FCM shouldn't be affected. It uses the Radar system behind the grille. LDW being off is no surprise It uses the camera module behind the mirror. Any misalignment in sticking it on or a windscreen curvature out of tolerance will throw it off. It is never a good idea to use aftermarket parts for these things. Better let your dealer do it, they can take responsibility for proper fitment.

For modern vehicle with camera, never use aftermarket stuff. You should have claimed thru insurance & have dealer do it. My deductible is $500 so it's a no brainer.
